3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber color with a very thin off white head. Nice sweet caramel and toasted malt aroma. Initial flavor is sweet caramel before fading to a slightly bitter finish. Well carbonated with a watery texture. The flavor dulls quite a bit after the first few sips and I even pick up a metallic taste. OK for the price though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ar: Malty, slight hint of corn and caramel, a touch floral.
Ap: Orange-amber with a medium-small white head with moderate retention - a small but solid ring of lacing.
T: Lightly sweet, toasty and touch spicy - peppery and malty through to the finish, with a medium-low bitterness and a grassy undertone.
P: Medium-light body with medium carbonation - finish is dry.
O: A nice vienna - clean and refreshing with an elegant malt character.

Golden-amber in color. Faint aroma of caramel and biscuit. Smooth caramelized flavor with toasted hay. An mild drinking Vienna. Can’t beat the price either.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden amber, thin head, no lace. Nose is somewhat sweet with light hop earthy hop up front, brown bread, and a touch of grassy,. The flavor is lightly sweet caramel up front, brown bread in the middle, a touch of toast, and lightly spicy hops in the finish. Light and easy to drink. Not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Well, this one was just ok. Pured a coppery-amber, very clear, but also a little too bubbly for my tastes. Not much aroma, a little skunk. Kinda sweet, kinda bitter, nothing really exciting as far as I can tell. Tastes a little worse as it sits longer and warms up. Drink it fast and cold in a pinch.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is not of my favorite style, but I find that I like it pretty well. It’s medium bodied and very well balanced and eminently drinkable. I think it’s better than what folks give it credit for.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s just outside of Chicago. Pours with a big head, copper in color. Surprisingly good for a grocery store beer. Very "toasted wheaty" in flavor, nice palate that lingers. Part of a "build your own" sampler, but if it’s cheap, it would be worth a six.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a very pretty deep-gold/amber with alot of CO2 that leads to a decent size head that retains and laces poorly. aroma is mostly of malt, with the caramel pushing a bit in front of some biscuity toast. flavor is very clean and smooth-some real juicy maltiness up front, finished with a pleasing wack of hop flavor (spicy) and bitterness. pretty nice, and pretty drinkable-and easily worth $4.99.
